@mentions not working with bp-social theme


I have installed latest buddypress (version 2.1). Have updated bp-social theme.

@mentions does not seem to work.

To make this function work i also tried to activate “BuddyPress Activity as Wire”

Looking forward to your suggestion to make this functionality of buddypress work.

    Hi, Aparna! I’m not able to reproduce this on my site, which leads me to believe this might actually be a plugin conflict.

    Have you recently installed any new plugins? Are you plugins all up to date? Do you have “Notifications” active on your BuddyPress settings?

    If none of these apply, let’s check to make sure there isn’t a conflict with another plugin by deactivating all plugins except BuddyPress, and trying to leave an @mention.

    Let me know how this goes!

    HI Michelle Shull,

    That’s a plugin conflict only. I had a plugin for posting classifieds ads – bepro listings. where i made correction to entire files by modifying the name from “Listings” to “Jobs”. Now i had to remove the same and start all over again with probably “Classifieds”.

    Thanks a lot.

    @mentions works now.

    But by anyway i can show “Jobs” rather than “Classifieds” in my site. If yes where should i look for to modify the files.



Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
